What is chronic care?

Chronic care refers to the ongoing care you need to manage a long-term illness. A chronic disease is any health problem that lasts more than a year and requires ongoing medical care or affects your ability to take care of your personal needs. 

Chronic diseases are common and affect people of all ages. Chronic care management aims to help control the symptoms brought on by these long-term illnesses, limiting their negative effect on your life. 

Chronic care also gives you the support and tools to make lifestyle changes that improve the at-home management of your disease, preventing or delaying complications.

The team at Vine Family Medicine includes board-certified family medicine physicians with advanced training in chronic care management. They specialize in diagnosing and treating chronic diseases.
